Google Maps has rolled out a small design update to help us find more delivery and takeout options during the COVID-19 lockdown.
If you are one of millions of people living through a lockdown situation, you have probably been busy exploring ways to replace your weekly trip to your favorite restaurants. Today, Google Maps has rolled out a small design update that will make it easier for us to find out what is available for delivery and take-out around us.
First spotted by 9to5Mac, the “delivery” and “takeout” buttons have actually been available for some time. But in response to the current situation, Google has made them more prominent, giving users the ability to surface these options with a single tap.
The buttons are part of a carousel option that Google Maps rolled out last year. It includes other options such as cafes, restaurants, and pharmacies among other retail services. Placing the “delivery” and “takeout” options upfront should help struggling food businesses to stay afloat during the pandemic, with many having transformed their dine-in services to continue to serve their customers.
Google Maps has also added a link to verified and updated information on the coronavirus.
